If you want to know which universities and higher education institutions around the world accept Cambridge qualifications, just search our recognition database. It is always expanding as more and more universities recognise Cambridge qualifications.
Here is a quick guide to some of the recognition statements we have received from universities in the last few months:
In January, the Hessian Ministry of Education and the Arts gave formal recognition of Cambridge IGCSE as equivalent to the Hessian Secondary Level Qualification (Mittlerer Abschluss). We now have Cambridge IGCSE recognition statements from six of the sixteen Länder (states) in Germany, and will continue to extend recognition in Germany.
Università Bocconi in Italy provided us with a statement of formal recognition of Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language in March 2012. Università Bocconi has included Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language on the list of English language certificates which forms part of their admission criteria. If students apply with a Cambridge IGCSE in English as a Second Language at Grade C and above, they receive more points in the university's selection ranking.
University of Genova also sent us a statement of recognition for Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language. English as a Second Language is accepted as meeting the University’s English language requirements for the Modern Cultures and Languages course at the Faculty of Modern Languages. Students will be required to sit an additional oral test as part of the University's admission policy.
Three more institutions in India provided us with recognition statements for Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS and A Levels, including Visvesvaraya Technological University in Karnataka State.
We received a further nine statements of recognition for Cambridge International AS and A Levels from universities in the USA, including a statement from the California Institute of Technology. Over 450 US universities and higher education institutions recognise Cambridge International AS and A Levels.
University recognition of Cambridge Pre-U, a new post-16 qualification mainly taken in the UK, is expanding internationally too – including in the US, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Germany and the Netherlands.
